Okay, so I don’t know what happened with this tea. When I smelled the dry leaves, they smelled kinda funny, not really like earl grey or chocolate. I thought it would change when steeped, but the smell got stronger instead. It smells like smoke. I’m not sure what kind of smoke, but smoke nonetheless, and not in a good way. I could not really taste any bergamot or chocolate. I thought maybe it would get better as it cooled, but as I kept sipping, I decided I hated it and dumped out my cup. I have never dumped out my cup before! I feel so bad, because I love the other Della Terra Teas I got, but I guess this one isn’t for me. I really tried!

I kind of felt that way about this one too. I was so excited because it’s such a unique and fun spin on Earl Grey, maybe they will alter it sometime and try again!

I was pretty disappointed. Glad I’m not the only one!

Hmm, I have a sample of this one. Suddenly less excited to try it…

Kittenna – I’m totally curious to see what you think!

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
